If your not familiar with the track, leave your traction control on and VSC. You'll be suprised how much the car lets you get away with before it jumps in. Also, I'd put the car in Sport Mode. Good luck, have fun and be safe !

Not a whole lot of adjustments to make on the car if it is showroom stock. Check all fluid levels before you go. Check torque on lugnuts. When you get there, pull out all floor mats, spare tire, jack and all loose items on the trunk. At the very least I would cover the headlights and driving lights with clear tape or the like to help save from chips, breakage, etc. After the event, I would bleed the brake system and inspect the tires for abnormal wear. Check torque on lugnuts. Enjoy it!

I always tell my novice students...leave your egos at home. Too many people wreck on a road course when they try to go balls to da walls in a fast car with insufficient skills. Get all the fundamentals down and lap times will be quicker and quicker...guaranteed!

G'luck!
